      In a good location to see Edinburgh during a weekend

      It was in a tenement block and the Walls were very thin. We were constantly woken up by noise from the other apartments and the air conditioning units. Also horrible noise from adjacent building . never again!!!

      A really nice self-catered apartment that looks like it has been only recently renovated. The kitchen is well equipped for two people to cook and eat in, the furniture throughout is modern and stylish, and there is enough space to feel relaxed in the apartment.

      There was no wardrobe or rail on which to hang dresses, suits, shirts etc - we had to improvise using the coat stand. Beware of the four flights of stairs (and no lift) to get to the top apartment if you have very heavy luggage!

    • Group of friends

      The apartment was very clean and updated, and extremely functional. I was traveling with 2 others and there was plenty of room for us. The bathroom was simple but provided a lot of space to put things for 3 people, and there were other mirrors around the apartment for the 2 girls to get ready in front of, which was great. The beds were firm but very comfortable, the kitchen was beautiful. I would absolutely stay here again. Good location as well.

      The apartment was quite small (the rooms), and there were 3 flights of stairs with no lift to get there (this seemed to be the norm however). These were the only down sides.

      İt was very comfortable I can say that it was better than my own house and it was very cheap also it was in the city center I went to everywhere by walk from house if I go to edinburgh again I would prefer nicolson apartments again and u will recomend to my friends who will go to edinburgh. All equipment which you need in a house are ready and they were all usable kitchen, bathroom, bedrooms and common room were very clean.

      Staff was very friendly, helpful and accommodating. we reached the office at 9.30 am, and allowed to put our bags in their office. And later I received a text message that our apartment was ready although it was much earlier than the check-in time (3.00 pm). The facilities were really excellent, clean rooms, spacious master bedroom and sitting room, adequate toilet (only one toilet for the whole apartment), efficient kitchen equipped with dishwasher, washing machine- dryer, coffee making facilities, kitchen cutlery, pots and pans. there was even complimentary drinking water and 1L mango juice. the apartment is rightly located and easily accessible. it was near many bus stops to the city, within walking distance to the city and very near Tesco, Lidl, Poundland, etc. For us, it was also just in front of the entrance to the Edinburgh mosque and the kitchen mosque cafe which provides great and affordable halal food. I would come back and recommend this apartment to others.

      There was no facity for the handicapped, i wish there was a lift to the higher floors. My aunty has poor knee joints and we had difficulty to get her up the stairs.

      Good facilities very clean and tidy.

      Noise from street each evening unacceptable, traffic, party people and general street noise.

    • Couple
      7.4

      The apartment is located about a 10-15 minute walk from the Royal Mile - which actually worked out pretty well because it means it's fairly quiet. One end of the road that the flat is on leads to a ...... well, a pretty scummy main road but that has useful corner shops etc, the other end of the road where the flat is on leads to the university / student areas which are much nicer to walk through to get to the main parts of Edinburgh. The apartment was clean and tidy. Positives are that for a studio, the lounge / bedroom area was pretty big. There's a pretty good sized lounge area with long sofa, coffee table and big flat screen tv. There's a king sized bed with some drawers. It worked out much better than going to a hotel because we could buy a loaf of bread etc and make our own breakfast and come and go as we pleased (and have breakfast when we wanted!)

      Negatives would be that there is no bath (just a shower cubicle) and that there isn't a wardrobe to hang your clothes. The other negative was that we stayed in the studio flat (number 11) which was right at the very top of the building - four flights of stairs.

      The interior design is fine.

      The apartment is not clean, strange smell in washroom and spider web on the wall of living room. Washing machine is not working, mattress are too soft!

    • Couple

      Great location, not far from the Castle, Grassmarket and Royal Mile. Ungerground parking very close and secure.

      As the apartment was located on the ground floor, you can hear the lift doors opening and closing.

      Location - Stayed in the apartment in Drummond Street which was 10/15min walk to Princes Street. Tesco, coffee shops and bars within 2 minute walk of the apartment.

      Lack of mirrors in the apartment (Drummond Street). 5 girls trying to get ready for a night out and only 1 full length mirror with sockets nearby for hairdryer/straighteners is not a good combination!
